  • 4 cups cooked white rice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or grapeseed oil or avocado oil

  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 cloves garlic minced

  • Gently boil 1.5 cups water on the stove.
  • In a large pan add 1/4 cup oil and set stove to medium heat. Add 1/4 cup flour and stir together with the oil very well to make a roux. Once the roux is bubbly turn the heat to low, and add the 1.5 cups of boiling water, 1 tsp salt, 2 tsp soy, 1 tsp onion powder, and 2 cloves minced garlic. Cook for 5 minutes stirring often.
  • Add 2/3 cup nutritional yeast and stir it in, continue to cook for another minute.
  • Put the rice, broccoli, and sauce mixture into a baking dish, and stir it together. At this point you can add optional things like paprika sprinkled on top, freshly ground black pepper, crispy fried onions, and/or mushrooms. Cook in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
